Victorian English Advertising James Keiller Chunky 1lb Marmalade Pot
A nice example of a chippy and weathered 1lb James Keiller English advertising marmalade pot, dating from the turn of the Century.
These white ironstone James Keiller marmalade jars were all handmade by Maling in the late Victorian period. The company produced their marmalade pots in a variety of sizes, and this is the smaller 1lb stubby version, which is shorter and wider than the more common skinnier 1lb pots.
As most pots were discarded at the time, they often have spots of discoloration, minor hairline cracks, minor chips and varying shades of crazing. However, this adds to their charm as highly decorative pieces.
Commonly used to store kitchen utensils, they are also perfect for use as vases, plant pots or to store artists paintbrushes.
This pot is in fair condition for its age. There is a notable chip to the rim and a knock to the base. There is also a crack in the base although this is on the surface, and a number of spots of discoloration. However, the pot is structurally sound and is very attractive with its aged features.
Please check my other listings as I do often have numerous different styles of James Keiller pots available.
